How will a large increase in workload impact performance? How will a sudden reduction of workforce affect the business? What resources and skills are necessary to achieve specified targets against specified demand? These are all tough capacity forecasting questions that the ‘What-If’ scenario explorer (WISE) provides answers to thanks to advanced predictive analytics and the ability to easily create simulations.
If you are anticipating a change in workforce size, IFS WISE will enable you to plan what demand you can deliver and what to prioritize; when bidding instead for a new service contract or when expanding to a new region you will be able to rely on accurate recommendations on the additional resources needed, from their number to their placement and the skills they will need.
